Our next episode, On July 30 (note the 1-episode break), will begin discussion of Super Mario Bros. 2!
The game is available on NES (and NES Classic), on SNES in the form of Super Mario All-Stars, and on Game Boy Advance in the form of Super Mario Advance.
This will be short run (1-2 episodes), so we expect to have finished the game by the time we discuss it.
